elections would be held in 1990. in that election, aung san suu kyi, nominee for the national league for democracy handily defeated the military candidate. instead, suu ky was put under house arrest where she would spend 15 of the next 21 years. as if to underline what they saw as burma's new era, the generals also changed its name to myanmar. but the u.s. and other western powers refused to recognize the name or the military regime's legitimacy. when the regime continued to ignore election results the u.s. imposed sanctions against burma. they forbid investment in the country and blocked travel for senior burmese officials. >> that policy under both presidents clinton and bush was, in effect, regime change. it said in the reports from the state department to the congress every six months basically said, "go back an honor the results of the may, 1990 elections which the opposition swept and then we'll talk to you."

. at the start of that first term, newly elected president obama also wanted to nominate john brennan to be the head of the cia. but he didn't end up putting him forward. john brennan ended up taking his name out of contention for that nomination because of opposition to him being chosen. and the opposition centered on the fact that john brennan had been deputy executive director of the cia during the bush days. during the bad old torturing prisoners days of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new president who bans torture, but then you're going to put a guy who was there for the whole torture regime in charge of the cia? yeah, there was an effort made to make the case that john brennan had been opposed to the torture methods while he had been at the cia, but nothing in his known professional tenure backed that up. at least not enough to save his nomination. and john brennan withdrew his name from consideration that year and he did not run the cia during barack obama's first term. instead, he got the world's greatest consolation prize. he became a very

themselves registered, and show up at election time. it's one of the areas where balance is the key factor. get the information that is necessary to ensure the voter is he or she who they say they are. make the process as easy as possible consistent with that goal in keeping it honest. don't throw hurdles in people's way. don't reduce the number of hours you can vote. and create enough voting stations throughout so we don't have lines stretching hours into the night. i do believe what we saw in ohio in 2004 and what we saw last november in florida are examples of not meeting these standards. i do suspect that the people running those states at those times were not interested in making it fairly easy for a legitimate voter to get to the booth. consistent with the constitution, the federal government should do what it can to make voting a right, not an obstacle course. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

, but to get back to a national election. the political team on "first read" had a reality check for what you and other republicans face. talking about the challenge for republicans as they focus more on tone than policies. majorities of americans rejected some of the party's central principles. according to the exit polls from the november presidential election. for instance, 60% say that income tax rates should either go up on all americans or those with incomes above $250,000. 59% said abortion should be legal in all or most cases. 65% favor giving illegal immigrants a path to legal status. it's rare to find politicians in washington who believe their political believes will cost them an election or policy defeat. they almost always blame communication. isn't this more than tone that's an issue? isn't it more than rebranding? isn't it some of the central beliefs of the republican party that have hurt it with the electorate? >> david what i talked about this week was the need for us to connect our conservative principles with helping people and making their life work again. and i have talke
